usedragon added a comment to T116728: #define UNIFORM() cannot load texture but texture shows .

I have gotten some feedback from commy by making another #define Quote to handle the texture input.

usedragon added a comment to T79299: Callsign Module doesn't support more than 2 modules once you are squad leader.

I was using Callsign module under Group Modifiers.

Does the editor supply a Individual callsign Module or do we have to use scripting for that?

Larrow's message has helped me to work around the FIA Site module. The forum can be found here http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?181791-FIA-Site-Modules. Other people have commented about the FIA Site Module.

First off in your Description.ext place this.

Then all you need to do is place your BLUFOR site down as normal picking NATO as the faction and in the initialization place
Code:
this setVariable ["faction", "BLU_G_F"];

To use the FIA Site module, you will need to use a script to make them friendly for NATO, but individual is fine. This shouldn't be the way to do this. Is it possible to have a option in the module itself who's friendly and what not. The Mission Briefing/Intel having Independent friendly does not work at all for the FIA Site module.

usedragon added a comment to T75699: Make Zeus's 3d editor compatibilities into the arma 3 editor.

@Koala

Agree 100%

I would like to see Zeus being expanded little bit more with the 2D Editor. Meaning anything you make in the Zeus will also appear in 2D Editor or vise-versa. BI did tremendously good job with Zeus for the most part (thought it will be a flop). It might even replace MCC on some parts.

Question, This has been up since Feb 15 2014, give few more months that it will be a full year. Has any of the BI or someone looked into this yet? This will be a good feature for everyone (mission-makers, causal builders, etc) in the long run.
